Good value for the $$$

My family has stayed at this hotel many times. It's a good deal and great for kids, especially as they can eat well at the neighboring Buttercup restaurant. My main issue is that the workout room had several broken machines the last time we were there. Furthermore, the location of the room has changed to a glass-enclosed space so it's like working out in a fishbowl and extremely hot if the sun is still up. I really hope the management repairs and updates the cardio machines soon. Also, venetian blinds on the windows to block out the sun and the lookey-loos would be great.

Good value, no frills

I've been coming to this place for about seven years. It was a great deal seven years ago and is still a decent deal today, except for holiday weekends when the prices are jacked up unreasonably high. Parking used to be free but now it's $17.00/ day. That can really add up. The fitness center used to be nice but now the machines are old and have been relocated to a small glass-enclosed space....kind of like working out in a fishbowl and a heated one when the sun beats down. Last time I was there, three of the five machines were broken and no one on staff seemed capable of fixing them. That was a huge disappointment. The Buttercup Restaurant is right next door. It's a nice place but could use some renovating, as could the Inn itself. The interior courtyard with the pool is very nice, especially when the flowers are in bloom.

Worst hotel I've ever stayed at! Motel 6 is nicer than this place!

I believe it was a towel rack that was missing and we could see the holes in the wall where the rack used to hang. Caulking in bathtub was dirty. They had bell boy racks and the hotel staff just watched as my mom and I struggled to get our luggage to and from the room. Tiny elevator that only the rack would fit in and 1 person. This hotel deserves no stars!

Great pool area, comfortable room

The pool area was a nice oasis in the heart of Jack London Square (though the pool water temperature was pretty cold and took some getting used to). Room was nice, clean, and medium sized. Location was walking distance to many great restaurants, an excellent beer bar, the waterfront, ferry to San Francisco, and a slightly longer walk to BART.

Nice place in Oakland

The hotel offer a good experience. The staff was caring and offered advice on best attractions. Many have mentioned the train near by, but we did not find it loud. The lack of transportation to the San Francisco airport in the early morning was the only thing to consider when booking this hotel.

Oakland Experience

Good location right at Jack London Square and near great restaurants. Rooms were clean and comfortable. A short, easy drive to BART or take the shuttle. $14.00/day parking fee is not mentioned on the website!
